About Us…

Leadership with a heart. Family ties to Vallejo. 100% volunteers. 

Fresh Air Vallejo is a group of volunteers working together for a healthy environment and environmental justice. We embrace positive change, working to build a better tomorrow, today!

Many of us contributed to Propel Vallejo, our General Plan 2040 update which offers a new vision that respects our history and builds on it with planning for the future. The preferred scenario – a River Bay City – was recommend to City Council and approved unanimously. Starting in 2022 Vallejo will update three General Plan elements, all of interest to Fresh Air Vallejo: Environmental Justice, Housing, and Safety & Resilience. This update can be followed at https://www.myvallejo.com/3eu. In additional the Mare Island Company (Southern Land Company + the Nimitz Group) has begun work on a Mare Island Specific Plan update which FAV will be watching closely: https://www.mareislandco.com/presentations

Our Board of Directors and followers volunteer on a wide range of issues Vallejo, from housing for the homeless and caring for our wildlife and environment, to fostering new business, promoting the arts and education of our children. We serve on Boards and Commissions of the City and County. We research all sides of issues that face Vallejo and bring our professional experience and expertise to the discussion, all with the goal of helping Vallejo to prosper. 

 We are not alone. Many cities and towns across America are fighting for their future. All depend on active participation from their communities. We invite you to join us here or in whatever community you reside.

A special thank you to Monica Brown, Solano County Supervisor, District 2, for researching the issues and taking a stance to protect her district residents; to Vallejo’s Planning Commission, Landis Graden, Chair, who rejected this proposed project; to those members of Vallejo’s City Council and City Staff who considered our positions, tolerated our vigilance with their understanding, and shared some of our concerns; to the many donors who supported our legal effort and material needs; and to the Tiger Team for their special contributions while choosing to remain anonymous.
